Lukasz joined us on July 26th and will stay until August 15t to take pictures for a story for Getty Images. He has already taken 6151 images and expect to take around 30.000 images… Only a selection of the very best will be used by Getty Images. His stay has inspired a livelily discussion on the art of Photography. We all enjoy Lukasz's stay.
